It’s my first post! Best of luck with the newish site/forum!
My dreams... as far as space and the future might be, to be able to work on the moon or Mars one day. Though I doubt it would be a realistic possibility in my lifetime. It’s the 50th anniversary of Apollo and we are just preparing to re-walk those same steps again now in 2019... I’m in my 30s, I dont plan on being alive in another 50years lol so the rate of advancement either has to increase at a geometric rate or I’ll be watching man starting his first science outpost on Mars on TV while a nurse spoons baby food into my old toothless mouth >_<...
But I’m trying to develop some expertise that might be useful in the area of human expansion anyway. At the moment I’m just undertaking some basic education in the field of growing plants (actually fitting 2 years of study into one which I’m proud of XD) This is coming off the back of 6 years of work in logistics followed by 4 years in security. So it’s a bit of a departure but hopefully I can get to the point of being able to design, troubleshoot and generally manage closed life support systems. Still a long way off and I might not get there, and it’s probably preparation for a job that will never be available, and even if it was there would certainly be many more qualified people competing for it... but what else can one do u_u. I’m no Elon Musk, I’m just a dreamer, but maybe one day my stars will align.
